could vote on his nomination either tomorrow or thursday. the vatican is dismissing reports that pope benedict the 16th's decision to step down was linked to a medical intervention to replace the battery in his pacemaker. this is the first time the vatican has mentioned a papal pacemaker which was installed years before benedict became pope. the pope blames it on old age and declining helath and the vatican says no specific ailment forced him resign already there's lots of guessing about who will succeed pope benedict when he resigns. many have suggested that the growth of catholicism in africa justifies a black pope. others say the strength of the church in latin america calls for a hispanic pope. dram 18 voting cardinals. 2/3 to elect the new pope. it is really speculation on who the new pope might be. a vatican spokesman says pope benedict will leave his post by the end of the month and a new pope will be in place by easter. a fugitive ex-cop from los angeles may have escaped to mexico, with some help. former l-a-p-d officer christopher dorner is charged with murdering a riverside
has resigned in six centuries, there's very little precedent for what will happen at the vatican, but there are a few hints. the papal spokesman announced that there'll be a new pope by easter. easter is the 31st of march, so the 118 members will have to get through that. the spokesman also said the college of cardinals will not convene while the pope is still? office. so that means the popes will not go into conclave before he steps down. the election process itself could be quite short. with jet travel it no longer takes weeks for cardinals to gather. in fact third quarter could arrive early in march. what will be missing is the period of mourning and reflection that takes place when a pope dies. it is still an open question whether the cardinals will immediately fwaer and go sbieng the conclave or take a few days to get into the mood for electing a pope. also unclear is whether without a mourning period there will be time in the schedule for the kwee yet and formal gathers of cardinals which have in the past have been a time when the men who decide the next pope can size up th
the vatican naming murphy. as cardinal ratzinger served as the head of the powerful congregation for the doctrine of the faith, an office known in earlier years as the inquisition. church records indicate ratzinger was aware of father murphy's abuse, yet murphy remained a priest until his death in 1998. of course, murphy was just the tip of the iceburg. in fact, as the documentary reports, from 2001 on, every single priest sexual abuse case came directly to ratzinger. >> as a result of terry's lawsuit, documents were uncovered revealing the role of rome in the worldwide sexual abuse scandal that caught the attention of "the new york times." >> these documents seemed to turn the whole story that we had been writing all these years on its head. up until then, what we thought was that american bishops were at fault. with these documents for, the first time we saw communication between american bishops and in particular the office run by then cardinal ratzinger in which the american bishops are pleading with officials in the vatican repeatedly, saying help us get this priest out of t
and years. >> christiane, we're talking about how the vatican claims that some of these scandals we're hearing about is an attempt to influence the selection of the next pope. are there any signs that any of this is having an impact on the process? >> look, i don't think so, but i can actually confirm what you just said and what your guests just said. there is a feeling of being really under siege here by the vatican. there's a feeling of being beleaguered. there's a feeling that we're all focusing far too much on these scandals. and there isn't a feeling that we just need to get this out in the open and staunch this wound, if you like. and certainly today you had victims' groups, victims who came over here and had a press conference and laid out what they would like the vatican to do to finally make this a fully transparent, accountable and for it to go away and certainly for the next pope to really start making the whole vatican accountable for all this. but they have really, really lashed out at all of us and accused us -- well, some of us anyway, of trying to influence the next
